An herbal materia medica is a personal reference guide for information you’ve learned about herbs. Filled with plant monographs, the guide acts as an herb journal. My free 5 Day Herb Focus course will help you develop your own herbal materia medica. You’ll learn about plant names and geography, as well as how to grow and care for them. The course will further cover preparations, active constituents, effects on the body, recipes and safety issues. There are no prerequisites to the course, and registration runs through April 10th.
- The education involves getting one lesson a day for five straight days and they are delivered to your inbox.
- The course will teach you how to study an herb and how to evaluate scientific research on your plan.
- You also will get an intro on your plant’s habitat and what it takes for the plant to grow.
